WCAG Simulations

1. Fine Motor Skills

WCAG Guideline 2.2.1 - Timing Adjustable

Requires end-users be given at least 20 seconds to extend a timeout via a simple action. (Level A)

WCAG Guideline - 1.1.1 Non-text Content

All non-text content that is presented to the user has a text alternative that serves the equivalent purpose. (Level A)

This simulator will demonstrate why relying solely on color can cause confusion and frustration for users with color blindness.

WCAG Guideline 1.4.1 - Use of Color

Requires that information must be identified by more than just color alone. (Level A)
